About this pro

I teach from a limited pallet of just 3 colors plus white. It is much easier than you may think. All colors from the rainbow can be made from these three primary colors. I teach from those primary colors about color harmony, and how to achieve life like effects in a matter of an hour through modeling effects and temperature changes within each painting

I have been teaching this technique for about 13 years and many student are achieving their own personal success.
